Buildings, Bowties, and a Beautiful Dessert.

Three online discoveries that made me smile over the weekend:

1) Illustrator James Gulliver Hancock's attempt to draw every building in New York. Here are just a few of many, including my favorite, Pete's Candy Store in Williamsburg. (Thanks to Curiosity Counts for the introduction.)

2) These handmade accessories for dogs, which are both adorable and ridiculous. They're ridiculously adorable, really. See more at Charlie Hearts Diesel, here



3) These ice cream waffle sandwiches from Martha Stewart, which absolutely look like heaven. (Thank you, Satsuki, for pinning them!)


Happy Monday, everyone!

Hm, would it be weird if I brought an ice cream tub to Starbucks to make those sandwiches? It certainly would make studying here so much more fun ;)

Happy Monday to you!

Those illustrations are incredible! I used to live across the street from Pete's way back when -- I love seeing that picture!

Ohhh my goodness, those ice cream waffles...if only they were actually a breakfast food, I would totally be eating that instead of cereal right now. =]

I'm dying for a dog so that I can dress it up in accessories like those! My cat does not tolerate any sort of costume and just rolls on the floor and whines until we take it off of her.

Also, that ice cream sandwich. the second I finish typing this I'm going to my kitchen to bust open the pint of ice cream that is taunting me.

Happy Monday! Those drawings make me wish I could draw! And after seeing those ice cream sandwiches, I have decided to start one day this week with dessert for breakfast, and then take my meals in reverse for the rest of the day.

Shoko said...
